BBC Trust’s Final Tomorrow’s BBC Seminar
The BBC Trust will hold its final Tomorrow’s BBC seminar in Glasgow on the 7th December. You can sign up to attend here.
The BBC is governed by a Royal Charter and the current Charter is due to expire at the end of 2016. The Government is currently considering how the next Charter can ensure that the BBC and its services evolve over the next decade and continue to meet the needs of its audiences.
- What should be the BBC’s mission in the next charter period?
- What should the scale and scope of the BBC be?
- Should it be providing something for everyone – or only content and services which aren’t available from other broadcasters?
- Are the programmes and services provided by the BBC high quality and distinctive?
- How can the BBC best serve audiences around the UK?
These are just some of the issues which the Trust will be exploring at the event in Glasgow – and the BBC Trust, the governing body of the BBC, wants to hear from you.
Come along to hear the what our panellists have to say, and then take part in the discussion and give your own views about the future of the BBC in order to inform the Charter review debate.
Event host: Kirsty Wark (BBC Newsnight)

- Charlotte Higgins – Chief culture writer, The Guardian
- Chris Young – Award-winning producer of C4’s The Inbetweeners and BBC Alba’s Bannan, Young Films
